She prayed to the Father and promised Him that if He gave her a child, she would give the child back to Him. Not long after that prayer, she conceived and I was born! I now realize that even though I went through many trials and hardships as a child and young adult, I was under the Lord’s protection because of the promise my mother made to the Lord and King.
I grew up in the streets of New York City, where drugs and gangsters owned the city and divided it up as part of their territory. My mother stated many times that the Lord God had His hands on me and that I belonged to Him. Even though I really didn’t know the King; I was protected by His mercy and love. But there was one scripture that always stayed with me while I was disobedient to His Word. But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:33-34
At that time, I had a religious mindset. I didn’t know anything about the Kingdom government. Through all of my sin and disobedience, the Father and King kept and protected me. I experienced the love of the King in my disobedience. So many times I was kept safe from gangs and the mob. He protected me and kept me from going down a path I could never return from and would never be able to fulfill His purpose for my life.
Keep in mind, that word of the King was always in my heart. It was the King’s Constitution that stayed in my heart. Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Psalm 37:1-6
As I look back over my life, I can see clearly the hand of my heavenly Father guiding me and protecting me for this purpose. I make it my business to always keep His Word before me, and the Holy Spirit brings a scripture to mind whenever I need an answer or direction. Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. Joshua 1:8 NLT. . . Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 I believe this passage in God’s Constitution with all my heart.
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3 Learn to put all your faith in His Word and not in the government of your country. In this world crisis, He will bless you, keep you, and guide you through the Holy Spirit, our Governor in the Kingdom. He will protect you from all harm as He is doing for me and my family. I am a living example.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17
Remember, your faith in His Word is your most valuable asset in the Kingdom of the Lord God.
